Srinagar: A policeman and a militant were killed on Friday in an encounter in a forest area in Ganderbal district of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said.

The gunbattle broke out yesterday at Chak-Akhal, 45 kms from here, when security forces launched a search operation to track down hiding militants.

A policeman and an ultra were killed in the encounter today, they said, adding the identity and group affiliation of the slain militant could not be ascertained immediately as the operation was still on.

Another policeman was injured in initial firefight last evening and was undergoing treatment at Army's base hospital here, officials said.
